limits in the area, it was important for us to look at the skyline. bear with me on our planning talk for a few seconds, but it was important for us to look at when we talk of the buildings up to 1,000 feet what this will do to our skyline, what it will look like, how to maintain and make more distinct the city skyline. the city skyline today is characterized by what we most see -- the transamerica building, the bank of america building, leaving conte hours, and a lot of similar height buildings. the terminal and the project the transit center will create a new focal point for the city in exactly the places where it should be and create a kind of new heart of downtown south of market which is exactly where we have been thinking it should go for the last 25 years. as seen from treasure island as well, the idea is to really create a punctuated skyline with the 1000-foot tower at the transit center and with the endpoints of the ring kind towers on the left and the trans america on the right -- the rincon towers on the left. it is also important to mention what this will actually resolved. un
